What is the potential for cutting the cost of an installed heat pump?
- Dec 21, 2021 3:53 pm GMT
The UK Heat and Buildings Strategy, published on 19th October 2021, anticipates a significant drop in the fully installed cost of a heat pump as a major mechanism to achieve its targets of 600,000 HP installs per year. A heat pump installation today is significantly more expensive for the end-user than a typical gas boiler installation.
In the UK, this difference is particularly stark – a heat pump install can cost ~4 times that of a gas boiler, compared to ~3 times a gas boiler in Germany. Coupled with gas / electricity price ratios which generally favour gas, the economics of a heat pump proposition rarely stack up compared to a gas boiler. We have assessed what potential there is to reduce the upfront cost of a fully installed heat pump, where these reductions could come from, and what this could mean for the market.
